Liverpool are ready to battle Inter Milan and Napoli for an upcoming Italy U21 forward, while there is a four-way battle emerging for a talented Marseille playmaker, according to Thursday’s European papers.
LIVERPOOL, INTER AND NAPOLI IN RUNNING TO SIGN FIORENTINA TALENT
Inter Milan and Liverpool have sounded out Fiorentina over the possibility of signing Federico Chiesa.
The 19-year-old has only made a handful of appearances for the Viola, but he is already emerging as a big talent, having scored three times and made two assists.
And the player, who can play on the wing or as an attacking midfielder, is emerging as a more and more relied-upon player in Stefano Pioli’s line-up.
Calciomercato claims the Nerazzurri have already asked Fioretina about the possibility of a January deal for the Italy Under-21 international, with Fiorentina responding by placing a €40million fee on his head.
And it’s believed that is unlikely to put off his suitors, with Liverpool and Napoli also believed to be weighing up a potential offer for the highly-rated teenager.
Fiorentina would be loathe to lose him, but it’s claimed a move would be of interest to the player, even at this embryonic stage of his career.
